tv After the Bell FOX Business June 11, 2014 4:00pm-5:01pm EDT
fda? >> fda delayed a decision on one of their obesity drugs by three months. [closing bell ringing] the stock is to the downside but analysts believe they will get approval. liz: 14 days out of 16 days higher, it is time to move lower for the markets. please take a look to see how stocks are finishing up, red across the board with dow jones industrials losing half a percent. nasdaq is down just a fraction. that is not really a big worry for people watching in this market. the russ cell 2000 down half a point. s&p 500 down a third of a point. so much news today. we've got it. "after the bell" starts right now connell: so much news indeed. today's market action of the robert luna says forget the macro, focus on the micro, picking solid individual stocks. chuck self, chief investment officer still bullish keeping
eye on sector rotations happening right now. todd horowitz also with us in the pits of cme. start with you, tom. what is your take on today? >> hi, connell. hi liz. it was a little bit of profit-taking and we can talk about cantor losing election. can talk about a lot of things. markets will take profit at some point even if we to higher or lower. at some point the market will take profit. this looks like a little profit-taking. volume is down 30 to 40% of normal volume. we're seeing a national rotation, a little bit of selling pressure. boeing was under pressure. so the market sold off. it is down really a blip on the radar based on where we've been. liz: blip on radar. that brings us to robert luna who still says this is opportunity where you have to do the work to pick stocks versus entire indexes, robert? >> that is exactly it, liz. we work with high net worth clients and high net worth expectations. when they come to us they want to own more than a bunch of tickers in their company or
portfolio. in last few years it didn't make sense. you threw a dart, market went up and you did well. this is finally type of environment where you're rewarded for doing your homework. where the market has not a lot of head or tailwind to propel it in either direction, there are solid companies out there you can invest in and i think you can do well in this environment. connell: chuck self will field inevitable political question, and liz and i will talk about the eric cantor store and what it means. i'm not sure it means anything at all for markets. what is your take? >> we also believe it doesn't mean anything for markets. this is a one-day situation. even thoughkets, may have to reacted to it, the markets really looking for reasons to have a breather today. and long run, it will be the economic situation that matters. liz: well then, todd, if chuck is correct then, maybe it is the world bank's assessment we'll see a second half global economic slowdown that spooked
the markets today? >> you know, i think that is very possible. you know, one of my things i've been concerned about for quite a while, liz is growth. i'm still, i know we had a good jobs number or supposed good jobs number but i'm truly not seeing growth. i can't put together in my mind what is going on where we're getting more service jobs which are lower paying jobs. 10 years later, we're making less money and paying more for goods. where is the growth going to come from? i can't find an area which concerns me which would indicate to me a very possible global slowdown worldwide. connell: well, if it is a global slow down worldwide, to rob's earlier point you were making, that is area where you have to pick more individual stocks and stocks did well, recently led us in the rally pulled back today. next your best picks going forward, robert. that type of an environment because i don't know if you're, maybe as pessimistic and analysis we heard but certainly seems like you're thinking along similar lines? >> yeah. i think in exact same lines what
we were talking about right there. it is not a great situation to be buying the index. and there is companies out there though right now like amerco. this company, no one really owns. wall street doesn't follow. it has 70% insider ownership and u-haul franchise. they reported double-digit growth in self-storage. double-digit growth if earnings, in rental division. what they have right now, going for them, is this echo boomer generation. 84 million americans, ages 20 to 30 years old right now, that are renting. when you're renting, you're moving more often. avis, at the same time cut back their fleet. so it's a great company. 13 times forward earnings, cheaper than the market. liz: your turn, chuck. tell us where you get a sense of real opportunity? when it comes to adding names to the portfolio or areas to the portfolio that can give people decent yield and make it through the rocky times? , we think the.
>> we think the energy sector is where you should be in. post-sector models. the energy sector has become the focus. we like on a broad basis the i-shares, u.s. energy etf. it yields 1.5%, yet it has broad exposures to drilling, equipment and production, the transportation, and so on. and, but then on a greater yield basis, the kayne anderson mlp investment fund is one that we have in our liquid alternatives portfolio. this is one which you have 60 mlps. so you don't have to choose which mlp is going to be the winner. you have broad diversification of mlp and u.s. tax purposes you get 1099 instead of partnership taxation. it is very good for taxable investors. 6 1/2%. it is our pick in the mlp space.
connell: absolutely right. you see well-thought through ideas there. maybe todd is listening. we turned him around. suddenly becoming more positive, okay, i see we'll not get the growth and there is a lot wrong with the macro economy and you can still find individual companies that will be successful in that type of environment or maybe not. your take, todd? >> you know, i think there is always stocks you can buy. if you look and try to pinpoint good stocks, good sectors, you can always buy. the macro picture is not very good. micro picture, look into a stock. amazon was $30 a share in november of 2008. look what happened there. it was 60 by the time the market bottomed. there is always opportunity, if you do the homework like chuck says. if you look for it, you can find stocks to buy. overall i'm bearish the big picture. >> right. >> i'm not afraid to buy in the small picture. connell: everybody involved, good discussion, to get us started. thanks, everybody. liz: thank you, gentlemen. connell: eric cantor, we talked about it being big story.
surprising to put it very, very mildly. not just a blow to the republican party. wall street took a bruising as well. key policy issues could now be in trouble. we'll break it all down coming up. liz: video sales in u.s. declined 10% year-over-year, sony is branching out. a new playstation tv streaming and virtual headset. the electronic giant sending out a big message to investors and maybe apple as well, getting ready to take on anyone from apple to facebook oculus riff as well. we'll talk to the ceo and president of sony computer entertainment of america, live from e3. connell: that sound pretty good. paula dean, paula dean wants to get back into your kitchen. the controversial celebrity chef has an online network. would you watch the paula dean network? well america embrace her again. lee haw skins joins us. liz: he is only one who got her.
will paula make a big dom -- comeback? will former fans embrace her again? , on twitter, @fbnatb. ♪ [ male announcer ] once, there was a man who found a magic seashell. it told him what was happening on the trading floor in real time. ♪ the shell brought him great fame. ♪ but then, one day, he noticed that everybody could have a magic seashell.

takeover speculation swirling around that company. liz: we were just talking about takeover speculation and how to profit from it with mario ba belly. nicole has details. hi, nicole. >> liz and connell, we'll look at anadarko petroleum moving to new highs. the stock is to the upside and this is on speculation of a potential takeover by exxon perhaps. the stock is up 4.25% at the close at 108.32. they recently resolved a lawsuit involving a purchase of kerr mcgay. since then the raymond james analyst said this is the time and season sometimes people look to see whether or not exxon may be interested in making an acquisition. assets of anadarko could be very attractive to exxon. no one really knows what may be in the cards for this one but certainly think that would be a good takeover target. as a result we saw that jump. you saw other names as elizabeth arden and chico's. a lot of speculation this week. back to you. liz: makes things interesting.
nicole, thank you very much. connell: now to the eric cantor story as eric cantor plans to well, step down as house majority leader at end of july. this comes after a huge primary upset. tea party-backed challenger dave brat, with a lot less money, won a stunning victory. everybody was surprised by this. liz: indeed. let's see what kind of potential impact cantor's defeat has on policies and business, right? joining you, the your asia group's senior analyst. wonderful to have you, cory. >> thanks, guys. liz: get right to it. as we're a business network, we want to know, should business, wall street, big oil be nervous? where does he stand? he hasn't won in the general election but winning in the primary is a pretty significant moment. >> to that point he is almost guaranteed to win in the general. 7th district in virginia is very safe republican seat. should big business be concerned? the immediate impact that eric cantor has seen as wall street's
man in the house. staun epdefender of interests of financial sector wall street in particular and that is where there campaign contributions has gone. mr. cantor is prolife risk fund-raiser and distributor of campaign funds. that is why he is so popular. in his absence wall street will have to find a benefactor who that may be. it is difficult to tell. one of the more immediate casualties of cantor's defeat, export-import bank. this is arcane agency that helps u.s. exporters sell good abroad. it essentially guaranties the loans of foreign purchasers of u.s. goods. connell: right. >> agency is often called the boeing bank because the amount of money it helps in boeing transactions. in fact i think you saw a bow boeing selloff you particularly because of this concern. connell: caterpillar and ge down as well. you see the impact of that it could have on individual companies. there are senior washington correspondent peter barnes has also been on the story
throughout the day and joins our discussion now. cory was saying you're going to see some, well, to use market terminology as we were discussing stocks, micro impact of this. you also see to his earlier point the macro impact because mr. cantor was a good friend of wall street, peter. >> absolutely. in fact, i have the list of his top donors, connell. connell: there you go. >> financial firms were the number one contributors to cantor's 2014, in fact, by company, top three contributors were employees of blackstone, hedge fund scroggin capital and goldman sachs. according to opensecrets.org which keeps track, cantor raised more campaign contributions from this race from new york than from his home city of richmond, connell. liz: maybe, cory, that is the problem. everybody was saying the minute i woke up early and watched pundits on many different channels, everyone was saying he turned his back on his own district and way too involved in washington, d.c. could it be as simple as that?
is something about his message truly resonating? >> you know, i don't know if turned his back on his district is a fair assessment. he is after all the majority leader. his job is to be here in washington and control the house floor. and as i said earlier, he has been a prolific fund-raiser. you can't do that from the confines of richmond. i think it is fair to say he took his district for granted. he assumedded majority leader he was perfectly safe there given u.s. history, that was a fair conclusion. although clearly this time around it was the incorrect one. connell: you know, last night, peter, as you know it was outright shock. not often we're shocked by something that happens in politics but it was complete shocked. >> i was shocked. i think we were all shocked. connell: i turn on the tv, as i said this morning on air they're scrambling for guests of the anybody with a shirt and tie put them in front of the camera to analyze this thing. nobody saw it coming. it turns to panic, depending what side of the aisle you're on. by this morning i was talking to ed henry and mike emanuel about
it. let's not overreact. by this afternoon, now we've got enthrough the day, what is the mood in washington now? are people still scrambling or settled in a little bit? >> still shock but there is a scramble now. in fact cantor i want to point out is behind closed doors with his fellow house republicans. he is formally announcing that he is going to step down at the end of july. and this is setting off of course a mad scramble to succeed him as majority leader. they want, republicans want to assure some kind of a transition in the house. one aide saying they don't want this to turn into lord of the flies. and i do have a punch list of three of the candidates reportedly who are in the running to replace him. kevin mccarthy of california, texan jeb hensarling, chairman of the house financial services committee and pete sessions who runs the republican congressional campaign committee as well. liz: cory, can you comment on those names? when you hear about those who sit on certain financial committees, they surely have
relationships with wall street too. >> well, right. except in mr. hensarling's case he had quite a antagonistic relationship with wall street. mccarthy is the current majority whip. it would be his race to lose. part of his job is counting votes. we'll see how good he is at doing that. i doubt highly whether both texans get in the race because they would split their support. my inclination it will be mr. hensarling versus mr. mccarthy and in turn, mr. sessions the other texan may go for mccarthy's current job of majority whip. we'll see soon. connell: not sure whether or not, we used the graphic, description there was the next wall street darling, whether quote, unquote wall street darling whether majority leader in the house. charlie gasparino on liz last hour and brought up paul ryan. whether it is somebody else. maybe it is paul ryan or somebody else that gets the wall street money and wall street attention as a result of the shake-up?
>> ryan has said today that he is not seeking this majority leader's job. connell: right. >> perhaps, we'll see what happens if he might have his eye on speaker's chair at some point. conventional wisdom he is thinking of running for president. he is not going to settle tore speaker of the house or majority leader. >> in terms of your question about the money. i think ryan would be an obvious funnel, or source, rather for that money to be funneled too. he will be most likely chairman of ways and means next year, which is tax law writing committee. at some point he is expected to embark on a rewrite of u.s. tax law. what better guy to have defending your interests than the guy who is rewriting tax law? liz: as we've been flashing on the screen, he is economics professor. he is a free market guy. what if he simply says, stop giving big business any kinds of tax breaks? can he really make any waves on, in d.c. without wall street, without big business? i mean they're the ones that create most of the jobs. as well as small business.
>> paul ryan will hesitate just now. this is a shot across the bow for all these republican politicians here. paul ryan is not a dope. he saw what happened to eric cantor. so, i'm not sure any of that is going to happen. connell: somebody was using as a verb this morning you don't want to get cantorred. how quickly that happened. thanks, peter and cory for joining us as well. liz: good to see you, cory and peter. race for virtual reality heating up. sony taking on facebook's oculus with a new headset, 3d, who knows what it will reveal when you put it on. the japanese tech giant betting heavily on the gaming technology. sony computer entaint of america ceo joins us live from e3 in l.a. connell: the fashion world through google glass. i didn't put the things on yet. the designer diane von furstenberg put on her touch.
